New Ways for Families Post Separation Parenting Course
The New Ways for Families Parenting without Conflict course is a 12 Module Online Course for co-parents who are going through separation and divorce or finding it difficult to parent without conflict after parenting orders are in place. It takes about twelve hours to complete and provides a strong foundation for effective co-parenting.
This course is presented in a positive, “no blame, no shame” context and focuses on skills for successful future co-parenting, rather than focusing on bad past behavior.

If court-ordered, judges should order both parents to complete this course at the beginning of the case. That way, both parents learn the same skills necessary to manage their emotions and engage productively in the decision-making process before conflict and emotions escalate.
Can parents take this class voluntarily?
Any parent can take this course to improve their co-parenting relationship. You don’t need a court order or a referral from a professional.
The skills learned will help each parent:
(1) work more productively with professionals during the decision-making process
(2) work more productively with your co-parent – especially if you think that they are high conflict
(3) support your children during this transition
If you have been ordered to undertake a post-separation parenting course please confirm with your court that an online course will be accepted by the judge. Most do but some don’t.
